    Do these fools honestly think this stunt is going to garner more public support for their already tarnished image?

    And I thought Black Lives Matter Canada were pointless...

    We had one black guy in Toronto charge police in a hallway with a hammer and get shot. That was enough to spark protests here in Toronto. But as far as I can tell, no black people at all have been shot by police in the UK this year, and your BLM protests are trying to shut down whole airports?

    And they wonder way so many people have had enough of them. Hint - it's not because we're racist.

    I think the differences in academic scores, IQ, etc. are more attributable to differences in culture than race.

    While there is proof that black people carry genes that are believed to help running I've never heard of anything about intelligence. Could be wrong
    Intelligence is polygenic for one thing and varies from place to place.


    The differences we see in races are down to adaptations to climatic conditions in their geographical locations. I don't see how the traits contributing to intelligence could be affected by geography but I stand to be corrected.

    Mate, the police in the UK are just as racist. Police brutality against blacks in the UK is a very real problem.
    And you're pulling this info from.....where?

    Are they racist because they're the police and have a habit of arresting people committing crime and those people sometimes happen to be black?

    You see, I know how completely paralised the UK police are for political correctness. More of their training is wasted on 'diversity' than on actually how to catch crooks.

    LOL i love the fact that everything done to Blacks over the years have been forgotten. Black slaves and immigrants brought over contributed massively to the development of the UK, as well as lots of other miniorites...whilst the locals were the ones spewing abuse towards them...well not much has changed ha, so yeah dont start with that "our country" speech and "opportunity".

    To be honest i wish this BLM movement was done loads of years ago...but then even more Black people wouldve be killed on top of the slavery death toll...

    The fact of the matter is, whether or not there have been Black people killed by the police recently, there is still a huge gap, between how White people are treated and how every "minority" is.

    So stop moaning about the protest, at least its peaceful..i think...havent really looked at it..lol not much of a point... but theres no point acting like its unprovoked, because racism is still a huge problem in the UK and the ignorant posters on this thread prove that point perfectly

    Yeah, not wasting my time on this except to say as much. Go to google and do a quick search, your claptrap is easily falsified and mine is public knowledge. Type in 'black crime London' or 'intelligence hereditary' or 'racial IQ gap'...sigh, I've to go get ready to go out, do some reading on the issue.
    What about the Flynn Effect? There has been a continuous generational increase in IQ. White British people now have an average IQ greater than their White British grandparents, despite sharing the same gene pool. This shows quite clearly that societal and environmental factors greatly affect IQ.

    Plus IQ doesn't explain things such as nobel prize achievements. To quote Steven Pease in his book "The Debate over Jewish Achievement" responding to Richard Lynn book "The Chosen People" he says:

    [I]f Ashkenazis have average IQs of 110, and that leads to a greater percent of Jews with IQs of 130 to 145 (levels thought necessary to win a Nobel Prize), the math doesn't yield enough brilliant Jews. That is, the absolute number of Ashkenazi Jews in the world, generously estimated at ten to twelve million, is too small to yield enough brilliant Jews to explain why Jews have won one hundred times more Nobel Prizes than should rightfully be expected. High IQs alone cannot account for the outcome
    So even if we take something such as IQ, it is not sufficient to explain Ashkenazi achievement as measured by Nobel prizes. There are clearly other factors such as cultural and societal influences which also have a great determining effect on achievement.

    The brain is very expensive in terms of the calories it burns. Without plentiful food, a more active brain probably isn't evolutionarily fitter than a less active brain. Therefore, I would think that its not geography that significantly affects inherent intelligence, but the availability of food, and means to process it.

    As a non-Brit who is relativnly familiar with UK history I can tell the contributions of black slaves, immigrants and minorities to British development is 0. Back than in the glorious revolution the black did do nothing, or in the world wars which was fought by indigenous ethnic Englisman.

    And most blacks in UK are descendant of immigrants so they cannot play on the slavery card. If they do not like UK they can go back from which they came.

    Since when do standardised tests like IQ tests actually measure intellegience.They are not really credible.

    Well, since they are acting upon your name. Also claiming they are doing in the name of all black people in UK. Yes, distingishing the BLM fascists from yourself would contribute to social peace.

    You sound like a dummy, acting upon who's name. "are doing in the name of all black people in UK" So what?, if small group of black people protest about something this means they talk on behalf all black people. Like the KKK talk on behalf of white folk because they want a white America or ISIS/Taliban/boko haram and other nutter talk on behalf muslims because they do things for muslims. So you want each race/religion of people to apologies for a behaviour of a small minority, are you mad?

    Ok this has gone to far. Fair enough they did their protest the other day, but this is idiotic. They should be appreciative of the opportunities given to them in this country. History is indeed HISTORY and should be left at that. The oppression of our ancestors shouldn't be lingering on in this day and age.

    I think there is actually a "run fast" gene carried by Usain Bolt, among others but it isn't universal for top athletes. Think it was in New Scientist a couple of years ago... I'll try and get the article up later... But it's quite irrelevant, as you say things like altitude training etc all affect peak performance, presumably more so.

    Anyway, from what I remember the gene is carried predominantly by black people... Kinda like how a while back they found that moat people without African heritage carry Neanderthal DNA. It depends on your ancestry not really geographic location.

    As for IQ I think "black people are dumber" is a terrible statement to say whether backed up by stats or not. They're also more likely to live in poverty and thats more than likely a contributing factor, etc. I really doubt there is any actual scientific basis for saying one skin colour is genetically hardwired to be more intelligent. E.g. Chinese tend to pressure kids into learning so they get goodbtest scores... That doesn't make them genetically superior it's just a culture difference... That's probably all the claims were imo
